A world without women: the Christian clerical culture of Western science

4 Reviews
In this groundbreaking--and sure to be controversial--history, Noble traces the absence of women from the realm of science to a deep-rooted legacy of the male-dominated Western religious community. Noble further demonstrates how even in our time, the intellectual debris of an earlier culture still persists and the world of science is still mainly a world without women.

Review: A World Without Women: The Christian Clerical Culture of Western Science

User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

I expected much more history of science than this book contained. The first 150-200 pages are a history of monasticism and various Christian sects. Interesting, but totally not what I wanted out of it. Read full review
